Ubu, 1996-2024?

As reported today on social media, Ubu has stopped adding things.

“As of 2024, UbuWeb is no longer active.
The archive is preserved for perpetuity, in its entirety.”

Preserved for perpetuity, in its entirety, except, of course, when it’s not:

“Everything is downloadable on UbuWeb. Don’t trust the cloud, even UbuWeb’s cloud,” said UbuWeb as recently as January.

And as Kenneth Goldsmith said as recently as yesterday, “Let’s keep UbuWeb well alive!” and “Don’t bookmark. Download. Hard drives are cheap. Fill them up with everything you think you might need to consult, watch, read, listen to, or cite in the future.”

A .tar of the site would be really handy right about now.
